There was once a man who was sitting in a public place. Soon, he was joined by a friend, and finally, a third man approached. The third man didn’t say anything, but stood there for a minute until he pulled out a package of cookies.
The first man couldn’t help but think to himself, “Great–I was just getting a bit hungry!” He began to subtly smile as the third man opened the plastic package. The third man then pulled out a cookie and gave it to the second man. So the first man began to salivate as he soon expected that a cookie would soon be handed to him, too. He waited.
The third man did indeed pull another cookie out of his bag, but he did not hand it to the first man. Instead, he simply took a bite out of it. Then he closed the bag, returned it to his backpack, and walked away.
Naturally, the first man was confused. And he was now only hungrier than before.
